Fresh produce distributor Fyffes has reported it has continued to deliver strong results for its second half year to date following a satisfactory performance in the first half.

The company has attributed its good results to favourable market conditions across Europe as well as contribution from recent acquisitions.

Fyffes states that is believes it is on track to report record full-year profits, when it hopes to report pre-tax profit increases of around 20%, which is well ahead of its previous expectations.
